I was going to write a post yesterday about football since it was the official start of the season but I didn't get around to it. We went to the pool for the last time this summer and spent 4 hours soaking in the sun and fun. We were exhausted last night. But the end of summer means the start of my favorite season... FOOTBALL SEASON!!!!!!!!!!!
I LOVE college football. My dream day would be to lay on the couch all day and watch every game that is on TV while eating yummy football food! It doesn't matter who is playing if it is college football I am all about it!! So needless to say this weekend is the beginning of the best time of the year!!
Auburn football of course is my love. I am a 3rd generation Auburn graduate for those of you who don't know. My grandfather, both of my parents, all my aunts and uncles on both sides and pretty much everyone else in my family have all graduated from Auburn. I was indoctrinated into the love at a very young age!! Matt on the other hand grew up an Alabama fan. He had to go to Auburn for pharmacy school and he said he was going to stay an Alabama fan. That lasted all of 1 day. After his first day at Camp War Eagle he was singing the fight song an loving it all!! He even played in the Auburn marching band for a couple of years. Such great times!!! We went to every single game during our time at Auburn. It was amazing! Rain, sleet, snow or broiling temperatures - it didn't matter we were there!
Before kids we went to an away game every year with Brad an LeeAnn. We went to Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee and Ole Miss. One day we will pick up the tradition and go to more away games. Our goal is to hit all the stadiums in the SEC. This is us at the Kentucky game in 2005.
My brother and SIL before one of the games in 2005. Kelly was in the Flag Corps - gotta love the "sparkle butts."
Another great game for the ages - the 2004 game at Tennessee. I was a UT student at the time so I got student tickets to the game. I walk into Neyland stadium student section dressed in my Auburn gear from head to toe! The security guard gave me some funny looks. It was a great time. We killed them!!!
At the Ole Miss game in 2006. I was 5 months pregnant with Ben. Die hard!
